Page 2 has three reports, headed: "Highly Important From Texas--Reported Confirmation of the Overthrow of the Mexican Army & Capture of Santa Anna" and also: "Particulars of the Capture of Santa Anna" as well as: "Important From Texas" and then: "Further Particulars", all articles dealing with the historic Battle of San Jacinto, the decisive battle of the Texas Revolution (see Wikipedia). Much fine content on this important event.
As if this was not sufficient for one issue, pg. 2 also has: "The Mormons" which has: "...in Lorane County, Ohio...that a more extraordinary sect has not sprung up since the days of Mahomet. In the town of Kirtland they have erected a stone temple..." with much detail on it, then ending with: "...They pretend to have remarkable revelations, work miracles, heal the sick, etc."
Four pages, very nice condition.
